Early Demolay Patent and Membership Card

Here is an early Demolay Patent (Membership Certificate) dated October 22, 1928 and signed by Demolay Founder Frank Land (signed above issued to) that belonged to a young Demolay by the name of Marion H. Black (who signed his name in the upper left hand margin) and was a member of  Hutchinson Chapter in Hutchinson Kansas.  Their Demolay Chapter was sponsored by the Wichita Consistory No. 2 Ancient Accepted Scottish Rite.  Judging by the dates I would say that Brother Marion is in his late 80's or early 90's.  If anybody knows Brother Marion or has knowledge of his demise, please let us know so we can post it here.  We'd like to tell the story of his life and how his membership in Demolay molded his future!
